The way Trophies' are preserved by the Yankees.

Among the muskets captured from the Yankees while executing their ‘"grand strategic movement,"’ was one in the stock built of which was found a loosen tooth. The butt plate had been removed, a hole sunk in the end of the stock, wherein the tooth was placed and the plate again screwed one on rendering the loss of the trophy an unpossibly in the opinion of the cute Yankee who invented this method of preserving relics of the battlefield. The stock and tooth are in the possession of Adams M. C. C. S. Armory.
